PRIMACOUSTIC KICK PLATE
The KickPlate is a mic platform designed for boundary microphones such as the Shure Beta 91.
The KickPlate isolates the mic from structure born vibrations and provides a solid platform for the mic to help capture sharper transients. As well as the more traditional applications for boundary microphones where the Kickplate excels, it frequently finds use inside kick drums where artists find the resulting sound more aggressive.
The design uses a unique double hull pontoon shape made from high density foam that adapts to drum sizes ranging from 400mm to 610mm. A heavy laser cut 1⁄4" steel plate provides the mass to stabilize the microphone and is augmented with a neoprene top surface that secures the microphone in place even when submitted to severe vibrations.
